Edel Assanti is pleased to present Preludes: Emmanuel Van der Auwera – the second in a series of intimate solo-artist presentations anticipating larger exhibitions with the gallery in 2022.

Van der Auwera’s Preludes presentation combines four works from his ongoing Memento series with a maquette for his latest VideoSculpture, a study for an immersive environment the artist is creating for his solo exhibition at House of Electronic Arts in Basel in 2022. Through interfering with the technologies of mass media production, both series set up encounters with images in which the viewer ceases to be a passive receiver, opening a dialogue around how visual content operates on the public and the role it plays in the construction of opinion.
